Giving it to God

freedomThere are days when I just share where I’m coming from and how I’m feeling in my posts.  Some of those days I’m not the happy self that I normally am.  Tonight is one of those times.

I came home tonight overwhelmed with life, disappointed in many things including schedule changes, and frustrated with things that are out of my control.

It’s hard when you feel like you’re doing everything you can, and it still doesn’t seem like it’s enough.

It’s hard when you see your children hurting.

It’s hard when your children make choices that are wrong, and you watch them live with certain consequences.

It’s hard when life gets so overwhelming at times, that you burst into tears as soon as your spouse asks how you are.

It’s hard when you can’t fall asleep at night, knowing you need rest for the day ahead of you.

It’s hard when you’re too tired to work out, even though you know it would probably make you feel better.

It’s hard when you want to withdraw from the world to spend alone time with God, but your schedule won’t allow you to do so.

Life can be very hard…and tonight I’m feeling it.

I have a good life…God has blessed me so much.  And I know I don’t have it as bad as many.  I see hurting people every day who have a hard life.  I have much to be thankful for…

I am thankful for my family.

I am thankful for Jesus.

I am thankful that I was able to spend part of the day with a friend at Mission of Hope who came in to volunteer for the first time.

I am thankful that I was able to connect with the women in my BSF group tonight.

I am thankful that I am healthy.

I am thankful that with tears come a cleansing.

I am thankful that I am never alone…God is always with me.

I trust God through these overwhelming times.  I know He’s with me.  I know He’s got it all figured out already.  I know He loves me, and He cares for me.  I don’t like feeling overwhelmed.  I don’t think any of us do.  I don’t function well feeling this way.  I can’t do anymore than I’m doing.

Tonight I’m giving it all to God.

Thanks be to God that I can!
